Care First Resources in Carmichael, CA, has announced their "A Bag of Hope" Project helping seniors and homeless in the greater Sacramento Area.
What is "A Bag of Hope?", you might ask. Well, it's a bright orange, light weight bag that we have filled with resources and items, to bring a little bit of hope to someone's day.
We have an array of items ranging from pens and paper tablets to snacks, bottled water, soap and shampoo, razors, socks etc.
We are starting this project with just 100 bags of hope. We have already had several organizations and individuals reach out to us and offer hand sanitizers, travel toiletries and other basics. While we are not a "Non-Profit" organization, we felt that giving just something as simple as some bare necessities, was something we could offer those those in need.
Keep your eyes open and if you see "A Bag of Hope" in the community, let us know! If you would like to know more about this project or would like to contribute, please reach out to us at 916-621-3311.
Have a Hope Filled Day!

Independent living facilities are designed for the independent senior in mind. Most independent living for seniors are complexes, homes or communities designed for an age-specific demographic. The seniors who most are those who are able to provide for themselves, but enjoy the perks of a community: neighbors, activities etc. Some offer meals, housekeeping, transportation and laundry service as well. If a resident has a personal care need while living independently, they usual hire a personal care or in home care company to come in and assist them.
Care First Resources will help you find the community that best fits your needs! We will help you explore retirement communities, mobile home parks and senior apartment complexes.
Independent Living Options are Privately Paid for by the senior or their family. Call for a tour today!
